Have you ever lost your keys? Not been there to let in out-of-town guests? Missed an important delivery? “The question my co-founder, Jason Johnson, and I asked ourselves is how can we make home entry magical? How can we create a product that is safer than keys or keypads, and is also something that makes our lives a little better?” says fuseproject founder Yves Behar. We set out to design the August Smart Lock hardware to work with existing deadbolts, to be easy to install and be beautiful on a door. The intuitive app experience allows you to send virtual keys to your guests, specifying exactly when and how long they have access. Changing the archaic key system, making our homes secure and easily accessible for family and friends, and saying “you are invited” is what August is all about.
